Well I've been reading around here for a while....So I figured Id start a log since the other place I keep/kept one is pretty close to being dead lol. A little bit about me. Im 23, live in central ohio, I just started back to school over the summer so I dont end up being a stupid bum making 20,000 a year lol. Been competing since my freshman year in high school. Have competed in a bunch of different federation, NASA, AAU, APF, IPA, SPF and a bunch of unsanctioned meets back in high school.

Strong work!!

Thanks for your help, I think I'll just have to wait till Eddie gets back to go into full gear with squats as I have no one who will train during the week.

douglasoh5
12-01-2009, 12:47 PM
no problem man..and as for waiting I would say you should just go ahead and order the suit. you say you use briefs alot. So just use it with straps down and wait till ur friends are around to put the briefs with it and straps up..

thanks for the comment on my bench vid, you are right I need to get more aggressive bringing the weights down (both shirted and raw). Do you have any suggestions to learn how to do this? or is it just a matter of me not being a pussy and bringing it down faster.

good workout...lockout strength is down, but I got good productive work in...seem like I havnt been latly..I think I did 415x5 cpl months ago so im down a bit but I'll be ok...Talked to Dave bout the hip issue and Im just going to rest and let it heel. Not going to try and squat until february. dont want to end up not being able to ever squat again because im stupid.

12-21-2009, 06:54 AM
So it would seem the hip is in pretty bad shape. That sucks man! Get healed up.

douglasoh5
12-21-2009, 09:29 AM
Its kind of weird. In everyday general bs the hip doesnt bother me....and pulling(conv.)doesnt bother me....but squating no matter the stance it starts hurting bout 3-4 inches above paralel....So I may do a push pull some time soon since my pull is going good and take something crazy for a ride. If its heeled by fubryuary I will most likly start training for the pro am in august...was hoping to get 2300 before then but oh well I guess i could just get it there plus some by then

muscle_g
12-29-2009, 03:29 AM
Can you do leg presses or anything like that? It might take some pressure off of the hip.

NickAus

Thanks, just had a look at some of your videos- nice work.

I do the same as you starting the deadlift with hips pretty high, tried getting hips lower and squatting the weight but I lift a lot less that way.

douglasoh5
12-29-2009, 10:44 AM
Nick as long as you shoulders are even/behind the bar your good to go....the way wendler explained it to me...If your hips are down really far then there really far back then the hips just have to travel further...you want your hips as high as possible with your shoulders even/behind the bar. and george cant leg press...any time my leg come back towards the body the hip/upper quad ends up in pain....just gona rest like tate told me too....dont want to end up like rhodes

On another note Josh McMillan and Mike Zudurick were there tonight...Both are really kool dudes...Josh did some raw boards and Mike did some shirt work.

You may be right, I tested mine as well as I could and the tension was 240 at lockout.
Anyway PRs are all that matter, nice job!!

douglasoh5
01-08-2010, 02:11 PM
Are those regular mini bands your using? and yes any PR is a good one...cant bitch about progress

SELK
01-08-2010, 02:24 PM
for me quaded minis worked out to be right around 200lbs at the top. I know this because I know this because I set it up backwards from the same height and added weight to the bar until it touched the ground. quaded lights where 400lbs and just stupid.

NickAus
01-08-2010, 03:19 PM
Regular minis nice and new.
I had 220 holding them down and when I pulled to lockout both sides came way off the ground, I had to add plates to hold them down.
If the dumbells lift both sides of the ground 2 or 3" they are clearly more than 220 so 240 seems spot on.
It's pretty easy to test them, once the dumbells won't lift clear of the ground the total of the dumbells is more than the resistance at lockout.
Maybe I'm crazy?

douglasoh5
01-09-2010, 12:27 PM
Thanks for the info guys...never taken the time to measure the bands before....Iv only pulled against the light bands once and barely pulled 315 from mid shin with them...

How do you like the ace shirt?

douglasoh5
01-09-2010, 06:38 PM
Brian I really like the ace shirt...this is my second one of them. They seem to take a little while to break in but once they do there awesome.....When you put it on it feels like a denim shirt. Some say its alot like a rage x and alot of ppl say a rage is like a denim but with more pop....I totally recomend it....Just takes some time to break it in

Was it the inside or outside of your ankle? I think I'm lucky in that it hit the inside. I think I'll be able to push out pretty well to squat. If it was on the outside, I think I'd be screwed.

douglasoh5
01-11-2010, 07:39 PM

Glad to hear the hip is getting a little better. Just don't jump back into the heavy stuff too soon (I've made that mistake before). Have you been doing any hip mobility work or stretching?

douglasoh5
01-15-2010, 09:13 AM
Sidor...youll like the ace once youv been in it for a while....I hated it at first but after a cpl months it was golden..

Sean i have been doing a crap load of stretching and some mobility stuff....mostly do swings to loosen it up before I lift while Im stretching...Also been rolling on the foam roller and tennis balls at home.

On benching do you do a Full range day and then the 2nd bench day you do a 3 or 4 Board range press? What rep range do you normally work on on the board press day? I'm looking for something different to try on my bench.

douglasoh5
01-25-2010, 07:37 PM
George...yes on wed i do full range raw and on sunday I do 3&4 boards....I rotate them monthly.....I use wendlers 531 program for both......so reps are usually 5-10 reps.....if you want help with setting up ur bench like im doing it email me at douglasoh5@yahoo.com

Real impressive squatting man. What briefs are you using?

douglasoh5
01-25-2010, 08:32 PM
i used some old loose viking briefs today...i got to the box with a plate on the bar thats how loose they are. there good briefs though if tight...I like them better than ace briefs

SELK
01-25-2010, 10:09 PM
What size ace shirt are you wearing?

douglasoh5
01-25-2010, 10:12 PM
54...what are your measurments

SELK
01-26-2010, 12:10 AM
250lbs
49 chest
55 shoulders
16 inch arms relaxed

going by the sizing chart i guess that puts me around a 56, but I think you might be bigger then me.

douglasoh5
01-26-2010, 08:52 AM
im 260-265
49 chest
59 shoulders
16 relaxed arms, but i was thinking the head on my bicep is short....does go to my elbow...i think this may have something to do with me being able to cram myself into tiny shirts and it really not bother me....and another thing when considering tightness is how much your lifting.....so i know you could fit into a 54, but are you going to beable to handle the support. a 56 would fit good, but you might have to have the arms tightened up a hair.

SELK
01-26-2010, 11:57 AM
thanks for the help man, to many good bench shirts on the market right now, ace is looking good because its the cheapest for me.

douglasoh5
01-26-2010, 12:33 PM
lol i hear ya...Id like to try a few of them too but i too got a REALLY good deal on my ace shirt...if you get it be patient with it....takes a few times to get a good feel for it....I hated it at first but after a while i loved it...

douglasoh5

Ya Im going up there on friday mornings and squating now. Its freaking awesome. and ya the pace is fast. I like it though. weve had 3 groups of 3 squating this past month and were all done a lil after 9 and we dont get going till bout 820-830. If you could ever make it there one day on a friday MORNING you should. Lou dont give a **** about the evening crew. He would prolly love you cause ur a good puller lol

I do need to make it out there sometime to train. I went when Louie had a seminar at super training. That was pretty cool, but I'm sure training at Westside would be a totally different experience.

douglasoh5
02-26-2010, 08:08 PM
Ya it is great man. Im sure at the seminar he overloaded your mind with info and ideas. When your there and see and do the stuff they do and get coached every set and rep by it def makes you understand some thing that louie over complicates when he talks about it. but ya man if you could make it for a workout it will open your eyes to ****. would def help you and your whole team even if just you came out.

What's a quaded purple feel like? I tried the MM quaded when you did those a few weeks ago. I was going to hit them again tomorrow. Are you following a set plan with the rack pulls or just following whoever sets them up? Right now my deadlift rotation is:

4" deficit speed pulls vs mini bands
Pin 2 rack pull vs quaded MM bands
speed pulls off the floor vs mini bands

douglasoh5
03-19-2010, 12:40 PM
the quad purples are freaky crazy. thats why I used 225 lol. but as far as deadlifts go on DE day its 2 weeks speed pulls from ground sumo. 2 weeks random rack and random band. the rack pulls on this day is reps. 3-5 reps. stiocking with a semi hard weight. my ME day when i deadlift its just something random that i feel like doing. depends on how i feel from friday. and Mick I put my briefs on at 330

MarcusWild
03-19-2010, 01:07 PM
Thanks. That sounds about right. I find doing heavy singles on the rack pulls beats me up less than sets of 3-5. I prefer to do sets of 3-5 as an accessory on ME day.

Dang, is pin 4 a couple of inches below your knee? I may have to try those after I squat tomorrow. I'm trying to copy as much of your deadlift training as I can, since you deadlift more than me. It gives me a good goal for each training session.

LOL. I may be competing April 24th. Well, depends on whether I can get my fat ass in my Ace because I cant afford a new suit right now and this meet is going to cost me 130. I'll have a better idea this weekend if I can fit in it.

one to poor to buy a bigger suit lol. hell as much as your raw strength is up rite now you could still smash a pr squat with just the suit.maybe get some single ply titan briefs....really thin but still give good support. plus i think there only like 60 bucks


and thanks Nick.

Benching didnt really go as planned. Arms were trashed for some reason. felt like the damn shirt was going to tear my biceps off once I remotely got close to touching. Should have iced tuesday. I put it on as soon as I got home though...

On a better note my gf decided to do the Cinnimon Challenge last night...
